    Because the last thread kicked the bucket.

    From the last thread:

    "Anonymous 05/08/11(Sun)18:15 No.14859356

    Come on fat/tg/uys let's settle this whole sector deal. Seems to me that most of the guys that made there voices heard are for a new sector.

    Wow about we count all the votes that have been cast 24 hours from now and call it then?"

    Wow about we count all the votes that have been cast 24 hours from now and call it then?"


    From the last thread, we had two votes for the Moenia Silicis/Castle Rock Sector and... No-one else has voted yet. Still, there's sometime before it finishes.

    Also before the last thread died, we were discussing the Maresian SeaGuard. Thus far we've got them fluffed as badarses trained to be the best of the best, who specialise in island hopping and beach attacks. However, there were a few doubts about the whole specialisation thing, so I'll let you guys sort that out.

    Founded in the 33rd Millenium when a lone Administratum clerk found a fragment of the text "Call of Cth-", the High Lords were notified and geneseed of the Blood Angels began being stockpiled for the founding of the Abyssal Jaws. Since its founding the Chapter has made itself known for its vicious tenacity in close range combat and specilation in aquatic enviroments as well as its open disregard for the Codex with its numbers being several times over the stipulated 1,000.

    What more needs be fluffed, then?
    >> Anonymous 05/09/11(Mon)12:39 No.14868448

    With the SeaGuard, or in general?

    With the SeaGuard, pretty much everything.

    With the AJ themselves, the chapter leaders (we have the Chapter Master, but that's it) and such. We've got a pretty unique organisation for a chapter, which probably complicates things a bit.

    We've also been doing stats as well, but I've not played 40k since I was about 14, so I really have no idea about that stuff.
    >> Anonymous 05/09/11(Mon)12:50 No.14868519
    Maybe the seaguard could have a modified amphibious Leeman Russ design. Lighter and less well-protected than a standard Russ, but capable of hittin the blue and the beach. Call it the Pisces.
    >> Anonymous 05/09/11(Mon)12:52 No.14868539

    Yeah, that sounds like a good idea!
    >> Anonymous 05/09/11(Mon)12:58 No.14868591
    Ok, here's my thinking: Maresian Sea-Guard would have fewer combat-capable vehicles, owing to a greater need for transport ships. As a result, they are extremely frugal with parts, doing their utmost to salvage every single engine, gun, armor plate, etc. This also fits in with the "pirate salvagers" theme.

    Owing to their homeworld, the Maresian Sea-Guard would make use of trained and cybernetically enhanced dolphin-like creatures as underwater scouts. These creatures are used sparingly, as the cybernetics and training to make them are costly.
    >> Anonymous 05/09/11(Mon)13:00 No.14868608

    Are the dolphins used to combat Ork Attak Squidz?

    Red Alert 2 aside, I think that all sounds good.

    Ok, the Maresian sea-guard uses a modified Lasgun called the Ryfordi. Captcha has spoken.

    How about just making an up-armed and armored Chimera? Cut it down to 10 transport spots, but give it a Predator turret, or something.

    Maybe even one no transport capacity but with Leman Russ weaponry, instead.

    Might work. Pull off that damn dozer blade and stick those bumper-looking things on it to make it look more like a hovercraft.

    So, Maresian SeaGuard:
    >Trained to be the best of the fucking best. Most of them are failed AJ aspirants.

    >Specialise in Leapfrogging and combat in and around islands.

    >Also given training to fight in non-oceanic situations, just in case.

    >Don't use many vehicles, but those they do use tend to be modified medium or light vehicles, along with hovercraft.

    Actually, I sort of picture the AJ being like the White Scars in that regard. Knowing your chapters duty and the nature of the horrific creature that lurks in the oceans of your homeworld, would you really want to trap your brothers inside armoured caskets? It'd seem to me like leaving them trapt, unable to resist the corrupting whispers of the Old One.

    This works, the natural creature already looks very 'mechanical'

    Anywho I contribooted to old fluff up to the bit where we were discussing if the sea monster was an old one/slann/some other chaos/xenos being. Anyone able to updates me on progress I've missed?
    >> Anonymous 05/09/11(Mon)18:35 No.14871173


    Check this out, if you haven't. A lot of shit has been put-up on there. We've confirmed that the creature is an Old One and it lurks beneath the waves of Maresia.

    The chapter has around 3000ish marines and a very unique, squad-based organisation and don't really have companies. Cannibalism has been cutdown a bit so that they only eat the honoured dead. They're bros and don't get along with Ultramarines after they accidently ate a bit of Chaplain Cassius.

    Probably some other stuff, but that's all that comes to mind.

    So, just to make things clear:
    Chapter: Abyssal Jaws
    Planet: Maresia (and the moon of Noxyssus)
    Sector: Moenia Silicis

    Now we just need to pick out a Segmentum.

    I haven't seen an EN thread in a while, which is fine, I guess, we took a break before, it really helped the creative juices.

    What happened with the Guardian Exemplars? They were the IG marines, right? I haven't seen a thread in a while.

    Also I'll suggest the Segmentum Pacificus. Not only because herp derp Cthutlu is somewhere in the Pacific ocean derp herp, but also because the Halo Stars are located around there and they're full of freaky shit.
